Every time I sit in my family room and play Zuma or Plants vs. Zombies, I think to myself,
"Self, I want a newel post."
Was it a 90's thing to do everything in drywall? I think it was.
Since I'm totally not up for figuring out how to remove that wall, let's do the next best thing, shall we?
Stole this idea from my brother and sister in law's fabulous house. (Note: theirs is better.)
Grabbed a 1x6 of MDF I had in stock out in the garage and routed it,
And I looked like so.
Because it is a messy job, but someone's gotta do it.
I, too, believe that my handrails should be updated. But this is 31 days of moulding, not 31 days of Sand 'N Stain, no matter how much that title has a ring to it.
Do you know what this needs? It needs to be more beefy. It needs beef.
Added some leftover trim to the bottom to give it a thicker appearance.
We were watching My Little Pony. You really missed out.
So! I like it. I think it could be even beefier, though. I reserve the right to beef it up later.
